The guile-gtk package has a nice method for automatically generating
Guile Scheme bindings for Gtk; it does not parse the headers, but
rather a gtk.defs file which is a stylized description of the Gtk+
interface. It is intended that this definition file be usable for
generating bindings for other languages. It is definitely a lot easier
to parse than the header files, and the headers don't really contain
enough information to generate proper bindings for other languages
